Roger McGuinn You Bowed Down written by Elvis Costello

D# Eb/D Cm G# Fm
I suppose you're entitled to know why I'm making contacts
G# D# Fm A#sus A#
With acquaintances scattered all over the land
D# Eb/D Cm G# Fm
I'd promise you now and again that I'd honor the contract
G# D# Fm A#sus A#
If it hadn't crumbled away in my hand
G# A# Fm A#
Well we broke that vow independently now
F Cm G# Ab/G Fm
But I don't know why you absolutely deny
D# Eb/D Cm A# G# A#
You bowed down you bowed down
D# Eb/D Cm A# G# A#
You bowed down you bowed down
D# Eb/D Cm G# Fm
When you first looked away I might say it was really a kindness
G# D# Fm A#sus A#
It must have hurt to see how dreams sour
D# Eb/D Cm G# Fm
Now they say that justice and love are the next thing to blindnesss
G# D# Fm A#sus A#
Well you're getting plenty of both of them now
G# A# Fm A#
And so you parade where appointments are made
F Cm G# Ab/G Fm
And never meant to be kept unless you accept
D# Eb/D Cm A# G# A#
You bowed down you bowed down
D# Eb/D Cm A# G# A#
You bowed down you bowed down
G# A# G#
You'll value the burnt amber of falling leaves
A#
And you'll long to delay
G# A#
You'll feel their breath as they whisper
G#
It won't hurt you to betray
D# Eb/D Cm A# G# A#
If you just bow down just bow down
D# Eb/D Cm A# G# A#
Just bow down just bow down
D# Eb/D Cm G# Fm
And now every time that we meet on the edge of hysteria
G# D# Fm A#sus A#
You're helping them sell off some new party line
D# Eb/D Cm G# Fm
I remember a time when you would have seemed so superior
G# D# Fm A#sus A#
Now you say will you please meet this good friend of mine
G# A# Fm A#
So your in demand as long as you'll kiss their hand
F Cm G# Ab/G Fm
But all the applause is for their name not yours
D# Eb/D Cm A# G# A#
You bowed down you bowed down
D# Eb/D Cm A# G# A#
You bowed down you bowed down
